Rapid Healing for Wrist Extensor Tendonitis
If you have Wrist Extensor Tendonitis, you're probably in a lot of pain and trying to deal with the limited movement of your hand. Many of your usual daily activities will be difficult to perform. We know you're frustrated. We know you want to relieve the pain and heal your wrist as quickly as possible. While rest can help with some of the symptoms associated with Wrist Extensor Tendonitis, you need a more proactive treatment if you want to accelerate healing. You need our BFST® and ColdCure® Wrist Wraps.
The Ultimate Solution:
If you really want to get better, here's exactly what you need to do.
- Wear a ColdCure® Wrap as much as possible to relieve your pain and swelling and protect your wrist from further damage.
- Do a BFST® treatment first thing every morning. Do 2 or 3 more BFST® treatments throughout the day. This will help you heal quickly.
- Avoid re-straining your injury. Using KB Support Tape will help with this. Giving your wrist a rest is difficult, but it is very important in the early stages of healing.
Do this and your Wrist Extensor Tendonitis can truly heal - finally.
Blood Flow Is Essential For Healing
You can heal your Wrist Extensor Tendonitis. You don't have to wait for endless months in pain. All you need is the right treatment. You need to rest your wrist and stimulate blood flow. You need Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®).
BFST® Wraps bring nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood to your injury. This increase in blood flow works to actively heal your damaged tissues. Blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Unfortunately, an injured wrist at rest often has very limited blood flow. While physical activity stimulates blood flow, it can also lead to re-injury and a worsened condition. BFST® Wraps are the solution to this problem. The BFST® Wrist Wrap is designed to speed up the healing process while you're at rest. This means you're getting the additional blood flow your tissue needs to heal while avoiding re-injury at the same time.
BFST® Devices are Electrical Medical Appliances that
actively stimulate blood flow in injured tissue.
BFST® Devices heal soft tissue injuries.
BFST® stimulates blood flow through your injured wrist while you're at rest. This is very important, because while at rest, an unaided and inflamed wrist can otherwise have seriously impeded blood flow. It's high-quality, healthy blood flow that enables the healing process, so adequate blood flow is required for your Wrist Extensor Tendonitis to heal properly and quickly.
BFST® treatments are very pleasant and relaxing. People often notice a slight tingling sensation and warmth deep in the treatment area as the BFST® starts the blood flowing. For optimal results, we recommend doing 3-4 treatments per day. An ideal treatment regimen would be doing one treatment first thing in the morning, another treatment in the afternoon, one in the evening, and the last treatment of the day right before bed.
The BFST® Wrist Wrap is designed to be worn between treatments. After a treatment, simply unplug the controller from the device and gently tighten the straps. This will provide your wrist with light support and compression between treatments. This constant pressure over your wrist will work to reduce inflammation throughout the day, so you're working to bring it down even between treatments. This is an extremely valuable feature of the Wrist Wrap and helps contribute to a much faster recovery.
Dealing With Pain
Wrist Extensor Tendonitis can be an extremely frustrating and painful condition to deal with, causing you to reach for painkillers for some relief. NSAIDs and analgesics such as ASA, acetaminophen or ibuprofen are often used to treat the pain, but these drugs do nothing to treat the actual condition. In fact, NSAIDs and analgesics are known blood thinners and make the bleeding worse for fresh tissue injuries. Typical pain medications actually interfere with the healing process. Cortisone injections are used in extreme cases but these too are intended to address the pain. They do not promote healing of the injury and they put you at a very high risk of further injury.
Painkillers Are BAD, Not Good
Painkillers don't do anything to treat the injury itself. They only mask the pain, causing people to re-injure themselves and make their condition worse. If you need to take painkillers, try to restrict them to times when you're at rest. You can use painkillers to help you sleep. Using them when you are active is a recipe for permanent damage.
Avoid the dangers of painkillers and use a ColdCure® Wrist Wrap. ColdCure® Wraps are a safe, effective alternative to painkillers. They do an outstanding job of relieving the pain and swelling associated with Wrist Extensor Tendonitis, without any of the negative aspects of painkillers. ColdCure® Wraps also work much faster than painkillers. While painkillers take 20 minutes to start working, as soon as you apply the wrap to your wrist, you will feel the cool, soothing relief.
ColdCure® Devices Reduce Pain and Swelling
ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.
For dealing with the swelling and pain that comes with Wrist Extensor Tendonitis, nothing works better than our cold and compression.
ColdCure® gel packs were designed to address the need for a cold compression device that does not cause cold burns. Our gel packs pose no threat of freezing your skin or underlying tissue. This makes them much safer to use than other products that use ice, which can cause the skin to freeze, leading to permanent damage. ColdCure® gel packs are completely safe to use for extended treatment durations, meaning faster relief of pain and swelling. Our ColdCure® technology is a huge improvement on regular ice packs.
The ColdCure® Wrist Wrap comes with 3 swappable gel packs that contain our unique XC RigiGel® formula. Our gel is both firm yet flexible, unlike other gel formulas that are mushy and watery. This means the gel conforms to your wrist and doesn't flow away. It won't move, even under heavy pressure for long periods of time. It always stays in place to relieve your pain and swelling. The gel packs are inserted inside the wrap one at a time, so you can have the other two charging in the freezer to keep your cold therapy going.
Protect Your Wrist Between Treatments
When you're not doing treatments with your BFST® or ColdCure® Wrap, your injured tissue becomes vulnerable to further damage. You don't want to re-injure your already fragile tissue and make your Wrist Extensor Tendonitis worse. Apply KB Support Tape between your BFST® and ColdCure® treatments to provide your wrist with additional support and protection.
Our skin is soft and elastic and can stretch much more than the tissue underneath. When you apply KB Support Tape to your skin, it becomes a much more rigid surface than before, serving to limit how much the skin can stretch. The Tape makes your skin a source of outside support to hold your tissue in place, helping you avoid re-injury. That's why we call it armor for your injury.
KB Support Tape - Use All Day During Work & Play
KB Support Tape provides your wrist with ongoing compression to relieve your swelling throughout the day. It also prevents re-injury by providing support and protection for your injured tissue. You can wear it during all of your daily activities and it won't get in the way.
KB Support Tape comes in 2 different sizes: 2 inch wide and 3 inch wide. The 2 inch wide variety is ideal for smaller areas (Wrist, Foot), while the 3 inch wide style is best for larger areas (Shoulder, Leg). This also works for your size. Bigger people will prefer the 3 inch wide Tape, while smaller people will prefer the 2 inch wide Tape. When it comes to treating Wrist Extensor Tendonitis, we recommend the 2 inch wide Tape for best results.
The 2 inch wide Tape comes in 4 different colors: Pink, Blue, Black & Beige. There is no functional difference between the colors, they just allow you to express your individual style.
The Pre-Cut Strips of KB Support Tape are ideal for people who want to use their tape on-the-go. Since they're already cut into ready-to-use strips, you can apply and go! Each roll of Pre-Cut KB Support Tape contains 20 individual strips. Each Pre-Cut Strip is 2 inches wide and 10 inches long.
The Continuous Rolls of KB Support Tape are designed for people who want a more customizable Tape. You can cut the Tape into a variety of different shapes and sizes to achieve a completely unique application for your wrist. Each box contains 1 Continuous Roll of KB Support Tape that is 2 inches wide and 16 feet long.
We encourage you to try a variety of applications for your Wrist Extensor Tendonitis to find the one that works best for you. Also, remember to listen to what your wrist is telling you. Trust the pain. It's there for a reason. If you feel pain in a specific area of your wrist, apply the tape there.
The Medical Tape Advantage
What sets KB Support Tape apart from the rest? It's not athletic tape, it's medical tape. This means our Tape is manufactured to ISO 10993 standards, which ensures that our Tape is made from extremely safe, biocompatible materials. Our Tape is actually made from materials that are safer than most baby products, including diapers, toys and clothing. Don't let the big brand tapes fool you. You'd be surprised how many of them are made with toxic materials, because there are no safety standards for athletic tape like there are for medical tape. Some big brand tape glues even contain carcinogenic ingredients. At King Brand®, your health and safety is of utmost importance, which is why KB Support Tape is manufactured to such high standards.

Combination Therapy BFST® + ColdCure® + KB Tape
for Rapid Healing
for Pain & Swelling
to Prevent Re-Injury
Combination Therapy means combining ColdCure® and BFST® by alternating treatments, as well as using KB Support Tape between your treatments. Combination Therapy is much more effective than using just one product or the other. This is because you're getting the pain and swelling relief of ColdCure®, the healing benefits of BFST®, as well as the protection and re-injury prevention of KB Support Tape, resulting in the absolute best treatment for your Wrist Extensor Tendonitis.
Use the ColdCure® Wrap several times a day to help reduce not only the visible swelling you may see on the surface, but also the inflammation you may have and cannot see, deep down in the soft tissue.
Avoid using the BFST® Wrap until your inflammation and swelling has subsided. Start your BFST® treatments on Level 1. For maximum benefit, please take into consideration that each 20 minute treatment optimizes your blood circulation for an average of 4 hours. We recommend 3-4 treatments per day, spread throughout the day. During the day, do a BFST® treatment every 4 hours or before any type of physical activity. This can be anything that puts a strain on the injured area (lifting, gripping, etc). This can also be used for preventative measures after a full recovery to optimize your blood flow.
Do a ColdCure® treatment any time you experience a pain flare-up or after physical activity to prevent further injury and reduce swelling and inflammation. Wait 30-45 minutes after your ColdCure® treatment before doing another BFST® treatment. This time will allow the blood flow and body temperature to regulate again. Refrain from using ColdCure® within the 4 hours following your 20 minute BFST® treatment. This will counteract the treatment. If necessary, use the ColdCure® Wrap for pain control, then follow up with another BFST® treatment.
Any time you're not doing a ColdCure® or BFST® treatment, wear KB Support Tape on your wrist. More Tape means more support, so if you're doing something physically demanding, you may want to apply an extra layer of Tape to your wrist. If you're taping and doing multiple BFST® treatments throughout the day, do your first BFST® treatment before the Tape is applied and your last treatment after the Tape has been removed at the end of the day.

Medical Function - BFST® Wrap - Accelerated Healing
BFST® Wraps are Class II FDA Registered medical devices. In order to comply with the FDA's regulations, our BFST® devices had to meet very high standards of quality, safety and performance. BFST® Wraps comply with hundreds of pages of regulations and standards that are in place to keep you safe and ensure effective treatments.
Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®) Wraps are designed to promote blood flow in injured tissue below the dermal (fat and skin) layer. Utilizing our proprietary Energy Web®, specially controlled and incredibly safe levels of EMR energy envelop your wrist, stimulating blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. The resulting stimulation brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured area, accelerating the healing process.
BFST® Wraps come with a 3 level power controller. Everyone should start their treatments at Level 1 and work their way through the levels gradually as they heal. Proceeding immediately to Level 2 or 3 will not speed up your healing time. You need to condition the body first.
During your first treatments on Level 1, you may feel a slight warming sensation deep in your wrist. This is because, at first, your circulation is poor. The more treatments you do, the better your circulation will become and the less warmth you will feel. This is good. As the warmth lessens from treatment to treatment, this is an indication that your circulation is improving. Better circulation means blood flow all the time, not just during treatments. This is the goal. When you feel almost no warmth during a treatment, it is time to move up to the next power level. Don't rush it though, more heat doesn't mean better treatment. In fact, less heat means better treatment, so take your time moving up in levels.
BFST® Wraps are far more effective than heating pads. BFST® Wraps work to actively heal your soft tissue damage by bringing healthy blood flow to the area of your injury, deep below the skin. Heating pads simply bring blood to the surface of your skin, making it hot to the touch. This does nothing to heal the damaged tissues below. There is a huge difference between a BFST® Wrap and a heating pad.
The Energy Web® of the BFST® device is inserted inside a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap molds the Energy Web® around your wrist to ensure there is an even distribution of energy over the entire affected area. The Velcro® straps make the wrap easily adjustable, so you can find the right fit no matter what size your wrist is. You don't need to remove the BFST® Wrap after your treatment ends. Simply unplug the device and keep wearing it as a reminder of your injury. This will help you avoid re-injury and will contribute to a much faster healing time.
Complete the Healing Process
You need to keep doing BFST® treatments, even after your pain is gone, because the pain ends long before you've finished healing. The entire healing process is very complex and takes much longer than most people realize. (You can click here for the full story.) The key thing to remember is that long after the pain stops, your Wrist Extensor Tendons are still healing. This means you need to continue doing BFST® treatments in order to complete the healing process. Doing regular BFST® treatments for several months after the pain is gone is extremely beneficial. Do a BFST® treatment prior to any physical activity. This will act as a warm up for your circulatory system. You should also continue using KB Support Tape on your wrist to help prevent re-injury.
Medical Function - ColdCure® Wrap - Extreme Pain Relief
ColdCure® Wraps are Class I FDA Registered medical devices. They exceed all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy, specifically for use in treating soft tissue injuries. When applied, ColdCure® Wraps immediately reduce the risk of further damage from excessive swelling. Doctors and Therapists agree that controlling swelling is a fundamental part of reducing long term permanent damage resulting from soft tissue injuries like Wrist Extensor Tendonitis.
ColdCure® RigiGel® packs are much safer and more effective than ice and products that use gooey blue gel. Why? Because RigiGel® packs are like ice, but they stay at 0°C. While they may start at about -20°C straight from the freezer, after a few minutes they will go to 0°C and stay at 0°C for a long time. This is the ideal temperature for cold therapy, because it's cold enough to relieve your pain and swelling, but safe enough to not cause cold burns. Ice and blue gel packs will also start out at -20°C and rapidly go to 0°C, but then their temperature will just keep rising quickly, instead of staying in the safe, effective zone of 0°C. The XC Gel® danger zone is very small, but the benefits are huge.
While XC Gel® packs are designed to be stored in the freezer, you can store them in the fridge if you find them too cold from the freezer. Not all freezers are the same. If you find that the gel is too stiff from the freezer, leave it out for several minutes before inserting it inside the wrap. When the pack is soft enough to bend, it's ready to use for treatment.
Many people follow the RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation - formula when treating their soft tissue injuries. The truth is that ice can freeze your skin and numb your nerves, causing 'cold burns' and even permanent damage to your underlying tissue. The proper solution is RCCE® - Rest, Cold, Compression & Elevation. We don't want to apply ice, we want to apply cold that is just above freezing. Yes, you want cold - and lots of it - but not so cold that it's below the freezing point of water.
XC Gel® packs contain 10x more gel per lb than other products, for complete coverage of your injury. When stored in the freezer, XC Gel® packs have 3x more cooling power per lb than other products. This means you won't have to get up and swap the gel packs as often. It also means much faster relief of pain and swelling. Bigger packs with more gel inside, plus superior cooling power, equals an overall better, more effective treatment.
ColdCure® gel packs are specifically designed for the shape of the body part you're treating. This means you get the best coverage and treatment possible. We don't just use one generic gel pack with all of our wraps. Each part of the body is uniquely shaped, which is why each one of our gel packs is uniquely shaped too. This ensures that you receive an even distribution of cooling power over the entire injured area. This product was 100% designed to treat Wrist Extensor Tendonitis.
Unique XC RigiGel® Formula
Gel packs are notorious for having hot and cold spots. Our XC RigiGel® formula helps to distribute the cold energy evenly throughout the pack. When cold pressure is applied to your Wrist Extensor Tendons, the gel starts to warm up in that specific spot faster than the rest of the pack. The cold energy in our gel packs is transferred from the cold spots to the warm spots much more effectively. This is a valuable improvement as your hot, swollen injury will receive the cooling power of the entire gel pack every time. The temperature-balancing power of this gel formula is unmatched.
XC Gel® packs have 2 different colored sides: a white side and a gold side. Both sides will provide you with all the same benefits that our XC RigiGel® formula has to offer. XC Gel® packs can be inserted inside the wrap with the white side facing towards your wrist or away from your wrist since they're not side specific.
